What you'll learn in this drawing class:

Full Course Title:  Drawing from Life: Constructing and Composing the Figure w/ Rick Piloco

Working from the live model, students will learn to draw the live model where they will aim for strong gesture and draftsmanship. 

Poses will be relatively short, to focus on capturing the movements and fundamental construction of the figure, and understanding the abstract rhythms that make the figure such an important and captivating subject. There will be constant demonstrations as well as critiques.

Materials you will need to bring to class:
 
  • Pencils or charcoal or red chalk 
  • pad of paper (newsprint or all-purpose) 14" x 17" or 16"x 20" or 18"x 24"

Question from Kathleen T.
The figure course in Chelsea intrigues me but only if it is a small class - and spacious enough so each student gets a full view of the model.
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! It is a small class and everyone is able to fully see the model.

Question from Shirley A.
Hello, is this location wheelchair accessible?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Shirley! The building is wheelchair accessible with an elevator. There are multiple entrances, so you can either use the 516 and 508 West 26th st entrances. Take the elevator to the 4th floor. Hope this helps!

Question from Daniel M.
Is the model being drawn always male, or female, or does it fluctuate? The only reason I ask is that the last two classes I took there was a male model and I'm interested in drawing the female form too.
Answer from Ellen Z. Verified Student
This was a female model but that’s not to say they use the same model every class. You’d have to ask. I’ve taken classes at the 92nd St Y had women. But it varies during the week. This instructor, btw, was very good I thought.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Daniel! It varies from week to week.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 12/5/2019
I am a serious student of drawing and don't like unnecessary distraction - like music played at any sound level. I mentioned this when I entered the studio but the guy did not turn off his music. Teacher did not step in. The teacher was good - not intrusive - and a perfect number of students (3) and a perfect model. I would not return.

This is not a beginning class, by not saying this puts people in a awkward situation.

Yes I haven't drawn in a long time and felt a little insecure and the instructor was great. I saw improvement at the end of the class. It will be my regular class now! D
